    I'm going to be taking a trip to Vegas after New Year's and I'd like to go to UFC 108. Unfortunately for my poor ass, the cheapest tixx still available via ticketmaster are the $200 ones. EBay has tickets that retailed for $50 for ~$100.

    Are there any brotips to getting cheap(er) tickets to a UFC event? Do I have a prayer of getting comped tickets somehow if I'm not a major gambler at the MGM? :hs:

    i dont see you going to UFC for less than 100 a ticket, and thats pushing it

    if youve never been, its worth the 200...first UFC is always your best

    I would consider dropping 200, but I'm probably going to go to UFC 111 in my neck of the woods (Newark, NJ) in March. :hs:

    Also, the 108 card is pretty lousy. :o

    Watch Dana's twitter. He always seems to post something saying "Im in the lobby of ______ hotel, meet me there at 5pm i'll be giving away UFC10* tickets" or he'll say a fighter is in a lobby giving out tickets.

    reply with "dude, I live 1000 miles away, can you just mail me a pair?" and give him your address. See what happens.

    Thanks for sharing the useful information on UFC tickets.

    I'd also like to add that these tickets are very popular among rich and powerful figures, showbiz personalities, families, groups of friends and tourists alike. So it's highly unlikely that you will be able to get a good deal on them.
